Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love! – 11

It’s all happening…

It’s always nice when a series finishes with its best stuff, and that’s what seems to be happening with Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love!.  After delivering its comic tour de force last week, it gives is its most serious (though still funny) episode this time, and in doing so does a fantastic job of starting to deliver payoffs to all the threads it’s started thus far.  I’m going to be quite sad to see this show end, but there are signs it may do decently on disc – the DVD cracked the Stalker Top 100 this week, and historically series like this that appeal primarily to a female audience outperform their projections due to strong storefront (mostly Animate) sales.  Let’s hope so.

  • “Aikatsu” – Love activity!  The perfect formula to get Wombat’s juices flowing.
  • Curry isn’t something to joke about – apparently.  It is a fairly sacred subject to the Japanese for some reason.
  • CoCoRo gets a free plug (are they a sponsor?) – but I prefer Gorilla Curry.
  • “Baka Power!”  Yeah, that about sums us up.  And I guess that makes Yumoto the ultimate human.
  • So yeah, Hireashi and Zundar are in-league, and the goldfish is the top boss.  Between Ohtake Hiroshi’s hilarious Osaka-ben and the facial animation, Hireashi may be the funniest character in the show.
  • A cold-storage bag for Tawarayama-sensei?  Now that’s change we can believe in.
  • I love the idea of Battle Lovers cosplaying as the Battle Lovers to sell curry.  It suits Binan to a “T”.
  • Finally, we get the full story on Atsushi and “Kin-chan”.  Spurned – over a middle-school curry date.  No one could blame poor Kusatsu for losing it over that.  I like the whole setup and the payoff too – it’s a fittingly asinine reason for a one-sided blood feud.  But my suspicion is that these two will end up joining forces to save the Earth in the end.  And to eat curry, of course.
  • That makeup!
  • And then there’s An-chan.  Any ep with lots of An-chan is good.  What was with that question he asked Yumoto – is it a reflection of his concern over what he saw last week, or is he hiding some secret facet of himself?
  • Goura flying to the scene with an axe, bursting with An-chan love-fueled rage?  I wouldn’t want to be the one who has to face him next week – Goura is just going to see a giant log.

    Thai curry is flipping amazing, so to hear Ryuu talk smack about its culinary worthiness cut deep. Although Japanese curry is also good. Curry is good in general.

    Sorry, what were you saying?

    Ryuu broke my maidenly heart with that remark T___T.

    – I had to literally stop the episode a few minutes in and grab some Thai curry paste (this stuff is the drug I tell you)+Greek yogurt from the fridgge for a spread on bread quickie. Oooh dear.
    – Baka power. Yep that's probably it I must agree.
    – Currycide nooooo DDDD,: Can I lick the walls?
    – Kin-chan was suh a cute little hurt shota :,D. Btw among all the purple lipstick , blood irises and makeup vamping cum grudge&abandonment the Sailor Moon s2 Black Moon arc&final's smell is strong here. And in the old anime now I remember they did have a whole curry episode with the whole bonding/friendship/family themes side dish… Mwahaha.
    – The eyecatch! The eyecatch! I want a moe Zundar-in-a-cup plushie. World-dominate me all you want you irresistible plushie you.
    – Goran-chan going axe-crazy as his LilBroSense tingles! Woooohooo! Shining!
    P.S.: those randomly uttered 'Macho!' get me every single time.
    P.P.S.: I'm still rooting for a giant interplanetary sento soaking time ending. Now with curry.

    First off I agree with Ryuu on the Thai Curry and Coconut Milk issue.
    Also, Curry is serious business in my country as well (Jamaica) and I would also be pissed that Kin Chan busted up a whole (!!) pot of curry.
    Man, this show is perfect lol

    Nooooooooooooooo I can't believe it's gonna end next week!

    I will really miss this show.
